BIG CHILL BAR :: IKE :: 04/10/06

Isaac Tucker aka Ike first made a name for himself back home as part of New Loungehead, then went on to make drum’n’bass as Cuba & Gizmo, before settling down into his current role as drummer for cult punk funksters Spektrum (whose “Kinda New” was the dancefloor hit of 2005). In his spare time he is also does some remix work under the Ithz moniker, and his version of Pitch Black’s “Freefall” is one of the highlights of their new remix collection. Spektrum’s new album is due out early November and this night will be a good opportunity to hear some of the tunes in advance.
